* ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' had plenty of storylines with this. The ''Flesh'' series was about time-travelling cowboys making a business of hunting dinosaurs to feed the future, with no regard for paradoxes. ''Tharg's Future Shocks'' had stories about time-travelling tourists and the like. One story of ComicBook/DRAndQuinch has them spending their holiday repeatedly messing with Earth. With everything from creating the first life and meddling with emerging cultures to ''altering the layout of the continents'' so that the planet's appearance spelled out a rude insult against their dean. When humanity was accepted into the galactic union and everyone saw the offensive message, they ordered the planet (and humanity) destroyed just to save face.

* The RTS game ''VideoGame/{{Achron}}'' features a war between three different species, all of whom have access to Time Travel. It is actually a very powerful weapon so it gets used a lot, especially in multiplayer.

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'' has this. Pretty much every warp-capable starship is capable of time travel with little to no effort - the plot of two movies revolve around ships going back in time with little to no preparation before hand. Though in the case of ''FirstContact'', the enterprise was following another ship designed to time travel, but seeing as they got back to the future on their own, the Enterprise-E is fully capable of this. Starfleet even has it's own TimePolice another three centuries into the future to monitor time travel incidents.

* Deconstructed in ''RatchetAndClankFutureACrackInTime'', where the Fongoids were like this in the backstory. The Zoni took pity on the Fongoids and gave them the secret of time travel to make their lives easier, and they ended up using it in this way. The resulting paradoxes caused an explosion that wiped out over 80 star systems and nearly destroyed the universe, which led to both the construction of the Great Clock and the Fongoids swearing off time travel for good.

** Many, many advanced other species are known to have a very casual relationship with their mastery of time travel via various technologies. Humans have developed at least two groups with time travel -- the Time-Agents, (once including Capt. Jack Harkness) and those who run the Teselecta, robots which go and extract unpunished war criminals like Hitler from the time-stream to punish them.
** Daleks have time-travel technology as well.

* ''{{Doraemon}}'': In the 22nd century, apparently everyone can afford a TimeMachine. Time travel becomes extremely common place. As a result, many lunatics have the idea of using future tech to exploit and alter the past, which calls for the existence of TimePolice.

* ''"Such Interesting Neighbors"'' by Jack Finney is a short story where time travel is so casually available, in a future that's such a CrapsackWorld, that literally everyone in the world goes back to live in their favorite time in the past.
